Colombian Navy Seizes Ton of Cocaine

BOGOTA Colombian naval units found more than a ton of cocaine on a high-speed boat traveling in Caribbean waters near San Andres Island, the military said Tuesday.

The four men aboard the launch Pez Caribe were taken into custody.

The boat was spotted by an aerial patrol, which contacted the regional naval command on San Andres.

The smugglers tried to flee when navy boats approached, hurling several bales of cocaine into the sea in an attempt to distract their pursuers.

Naval units finally intercepted the Pez Caribe about four nautical miles from San Andres, located near the coast of Nicaragua.

The 956 kilos (2,105 pounds) of cocaine found aboard the launch was bound for a storage center somewhere in Central America, the navy said, estimating the value of the consignment at roughly $30 million. EFE
